Facebook Hoaxes

This is rapidly becoming one of my pet annoyances.  People who pass on hoax Facebook posts without checking the facts first.  People – anything that tells you to pass it on to everyone is almost always a hoax (there are a few exceptions).  Don’t turn yourself into a spammer – because that’s what you are ...

Business Transaction Deal. .

The usual blah from a scammer who claims to be a crooked bank official with access to millions of dollars which, surprise, he wants to share with me – or you – or any of the thousands of other people to whom he has sent this email.  What this scammer really wants is  your money ...

Your payment is now 100% Guaranteed,kindly get back to me

I don’t usually credit scammers with being right, but this one got one thing correct – ” KINDLY NOTE THAT SOME PEOPLE (FRAUDSTERS) HAVE STARTED MAKING FORGERY OF MY GOOD NAME”. Clearly he speaks from a position of authority, as one of those (self confessed) fraudsters. I’d love $10m, and so I’m sure would you.  If you ...

Cyber Investigation Bureau 3

OK – I can see this is another one of those posts that I am going to have to make really, really clear as people are leaving comments (which I’m deleting) leaving their personal details and asking these SCAMMERS to contact them. So, for clarity, there is no such thing as the Cyber Investigation Bureau.  THEY ARE SCAMMERS. I ...

Congratulations To This Email Address 1

Yahoo don’t hold random email draws.  Nor does any other organisation.  You cannot win a prize draw that you haven’t entered.  This is a scammer who is just waiting to get his hands on your money.  Ignore him. YAHOO ASIA INCORPORATION 2013, EMAIL LOTTERY PROMOTION PRIZE DRAW, ASIA PACIFIC REGIONAL, BANGKOK THAILAND. Congratulations !! The ...

Spam Comments By ksmachines.com

I am becoming increasingly ****ed off by idiots who leave spam comments on my websites.  Just today someone tried to leave 3 adverts on a stolen property website.  These guys clearly can’t even read – would you want to advertise that your business has been stolen?  Would you want the world to know that you ...

GOLD DUST FOR SALE

This ridiculous email claims to have come from free@dust.org.   In the interests of thorough research, I took a look at dust.org.  Do you want to guess what it sells?  Gold dust?  No.  Gold jewellery?  No. Books.  Yes, really, it sells books. This idiot has no more intention of selling you gold dust than he has ...

URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL (urgent response required)

“Mrs Salgado” spins some ridiculous story about being a member of a bank in the Netherlands.  However nobody, anywhere, is going to randomly offer millions of dollars to a stranger.  Also, I would imagine that a genuine bank would manage to keep the clocks on their computers up to date.  This email was sent from ...

G20 Global Award 4

I have no idea who G20 are or any idea why they would suddenly decide to send me $861,937.  Do you find it somewhat odd that they are going to send you the same amount?  It is odd, because this scammer has no intention of sending you anything apart from emails asking for your money. ...
